Little critters that grow from weird banana plants called “wannabees”. These guys can fly once they are ripe (yellow) and turn spotted and brown as they grow older. If you hated bananas before, you’re going to hate them even more because their flavor is intensified and sometimes even come in other flavors! (see the stripes: strawberry banana!)
Banangels like to live in bunches/hives, even sleeping together in bunch form, snugging noses to keep warm. This is also how they identify each other. Each nose has a special smell and unique humming snore.
They all act like alcoholics unfortunately, ramming their “horn” onto things for no particular reason. The are insectivores (note the sharp teeth) and prefer to eat salty things.
A banangels life goes from verde (green young) to maduro (yellow adult) and as they grow old, spotty brown they burrow underground and cuddle with the others who reached adulthood to make another “wannabee”.
Note that some banangels can be stripped of their wings. Sometimes they’re seen with little flower and/or leaf halos.
Plantaingles are a cousin species!
THIS SPECIES IS OPEN
Ceramic Mouths by Ronit Baranga
When I’m investigating Internet things for the bloggy, a pretty good barometer for whether I should post something or not is: “would I want to put my mouth on it?” I find this eliminates nearly 1/5th of all possible candidates, though I never once thought to instead ask: “would I let it put its mouth on me?”, because Ronit’s ceramic tableware possesses mouth things with toofs and tongues for licking inanimate funtime. Part of the Kama Sex and Design exhibit at Triennale Design Museum in Milan, Italy, showing through March 10th, 2013.

Cute and Cuddly Creatures by Luiza Kwiatkowska
Real animals are cool but I’m not assured in a teddy bear’s ability to fend off monsters hiding under the bed. Enter Luiza’s Creature Industry, a line of cuddly Lovecraftian horrors more than capable of fighting ghosts, battling clownbeasts, and gently lulling you to sleep in their tentacles.
